Dennis Wendell Shaw (born March 3, 1947 in Los Angeles, California) is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League for the Buffalo Bills, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Giants, and the Kansas City Chiefs.

College career

Shaw played college football for the San Diego State University Aztecs. While playing for the Aztecs he set an NCAA record by throwing nine touchdown passes in a 70-21 win against New Mexico State University on November 15, 1969. In that same season he set a single season school record for touchdown passes (39) and passes intercepted (26), the latter statistic led the NCAA for that season. He transferred from the University of Southern California and also played prior to that at Mount San Antonio Junior College.

Professional career

Shaw then played four seasons for the Buffalo Bills and two for the St. Louis Cardinals. Shaw was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press in 1970 and is one of only seven quarterbacks (along with Ben Roethlisberger, Vince Young, Matt Ryan, Sam Bradford, Cam Newton, and Robert Griffin III) to win the award.
